ParthenonCornerJuly 2016 may end up as a month for the record books. According to new® data, the U.S. is seeing the hottest July for home buying and selling in a decade.

“The best spring in a decade has transitioned into the hottest summer in a decade,” says Jonathan Smoke,®’s chief economist. “Pent-up demand left over from tight supply for two years against the backdrop of mortgage rates remaining near three-year lows have encouraged buyers to keep active at a time when sales usually begin to decline.”

Smoke estimates that properties spent a median of 68 days on the market in July, and the median home price is $251,000, a record price for the month and 7 percent higher than a year ago.

In certain markets, housing markets are especially sizzling.®’s research team took a look at the number of days homes spent on the market, the measure of available supply, and the number of listing views on® (to represent demand).
